The end of a long week spent with good friends
The silence of the first warm night without the fire going
Letting my girls sleep in their dress-up clothes
Family visitors who come bearing all our favourite food.
Farmers Markets with free face painting.
$2 pots of strawberries from a local back yard.
Chickens who think the babies is one of them.
Poking around in the garden, smelling fresh mint crushed under my boots.
Laying in the sunshine while the children potter.
Watching my baby rocked to sleep in his hammock.
Finding a spectacular block castle built in the middle of the living room.
Drawing and writing with my girls.
A dinner that everyone eats enthusiastically.
Laying in bed with my girls chatting for a few minutes before sleep.
A hot bath.
Sharing secret ice creams with my Baldy Boy.
An early night.
